Salvador Dali

The eccentric and well-known Salvador Dali was born in Catalonia, Spain in 1904. In 1916, he discovered modern painting and attended drawing school. Six years later, Dali moved to Madrid to study at the Academia de San Fernando, but was expelled a few years later because he claimed the professors were incompetent and couldn’t examine his work. Dali made a major contribution to the Surrealism movement, and created works that explored his “paranoia-critical method”, which involved Freudian ideas about dreams and madness. He produced obsession images, where detailed reality is transformed into disturbing and intricate pictures. His disturbed and distressed personality, as well as his late depression and confusion about his religion, was evident in his work, making him one of the most memorable and original masters of all time.
